November 2018

Version 2.0.2 of the Apache XML Security for C++ has been released.

This patch corrects a bug that can cause crashes in upstream applications. It is similar to, but not the same as, the one that was patched in V2.0.1, and resulted from further review of the code by the project that contributes all of the current manpower to the project. Appreciation is extended to the Shibboleth Project team for this review.

August 2018

Version 2.0.1 of the Apache XML Security for C++ has been released.
